Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 100

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It’s kind of crunched there in among
Those European ones—
Yes, Belgium, France, and Germany—
Those bright historic suns.

It’s known for its medieval spots—
For forests green and grand—
The Moselle Valley—it’s a trip
In very high demand.

But, oh, it is a tiny spot—
Among the smallest—true.
It is, I’ve read, Rhode Island size—
But still there’s lots to do.

The mammals there are limited—
Some deer and boar remain.
Oh—and, of course, the humans, too—
Who have the larger brain.

(Or so we claim.)
